Qiagen N.V. ~Nasdaq Bio~ QGEN Due Diligence 


QGEN Company Overview & Description 

QIAGEN N.V. is the leading provider of sample and assay technologies. Sample technologies are used to isolate DNA, RNA, and proteins from any biological sample. Assay technologies are then used to make specific target biomolecules, such as the DNA of a specific virus, visible for subsequent analysis. 

We have developed and market more than 500 consumable products and automated solutions. The company provides these products to molecular diagnostics laboratories, academic researchers, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, and applied testing customers for purposes such as forensics, animal or food testing and pharmaceutical process control. QIAGEN's assay technologies include one of the broadest panels of molecular diagnostic tests available worldwide. This panel includes the digene HPV Test, which is regarded as a "gold standard" in testing for high-risk types of human papillomavirus (HPV), the primary cause of cervical cancer, as well as a broad suite of solutions for infectious disease testing and companion diagnostics. 

QIAGEN employs more than 3,800 people in over 35 locations worldwide. 

QIAGEN was founded 1984 as a spin-off at the University of Düsseldorf. Since then the company has continuously developed and turned into what is today the world's leading provider for innovative sample and assay technologies for research in molecular diagnostics, applied testing, pharma and academic research.
